Currents is a spectacular show of “funky moves and cutting-edge technology” (Time Out New York) inspired by the historical Battle of Currents between Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla in their quest to find energy sources for the world.
Audience members will be taken on a “non-stop, action packed” (ABC News) journey between two troupes, each representing a different view of the essence of light and electricity. The show combines a variety of elements including specially designed musical instruments, massive video art projections, and 11 skilled performers musically juggling between different sounds.
About the company
In 1996, Elyon Nuphar and Boaz Berman, driven by their deep love for percussion and music, created the first Mayumana show. The company’s shared passion for rhythm, fueled by their unique sense of humor and mischief, is inexhaustible and infectious. Sixteen years later, with performers from more than 20 different nationalities, Mayumana has become one of Israel’s leading cultural exports and has entertained millions of people around the world.
